Big Picture: Enough and on Time

DVD copied by Master Scanner Liz Pruszko. Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). "Enough and on Time" is the motto of the Army Quartermaster (QM) Corps. Here THE BIG PICTURE shows the supplying of our troops with food, equipment and clothing; the continual research program of the QM; and, the latest in supply technique, aerial supply. This is the procedure of moving supplies from storage areas to airfield to drop zone, including the packaging and parachute-rigging of heavy equipment. Circumventing enemy defenses and natural obstacles, aerial supply represents a major advance in American military science. Captain Cecil W. Hospelhorn, who was a commanding officer of an aerial supply company in Korea, tells a thrilling story of the dropping of a complete bridge by air to isolated troops. Captain Hospelhorn is from Bloomington, Illinois. Now at the Advanced Officers' Training QM School at Fort Lee, Virginia, Captain Hospelhorn was awarded the Legion of Merit for his work in Korea. Colonel Russell K. Kuhns, Chicago, Illinois, is also interviewed. Colonel Kuhns tells of the monumental job of QM supply in Korea. He was the Deputy Chief to the 8th Army QM and is now Chief of the Research and Development Laboratory at the QM Depot, Jeffersonville, Indiana. He wears the Legion of Merit with Oak Leaf Cluster and the Bronze Star.
